You're basically by definitely going to be out of the realm of "just follow best practice X" or "apply pattern Y or you're doing it wrong."

    As a small example, I've been working on a small asyncio-based web service (Python) which is oriented around an expensive process that generates a result, where the result is stashed in sqlite and returned.
